Am
A holiday, A holiday
                         G
And the first one of the year
                        G
Lord Darnell's wife came into the church
    Am     G      Am     
The gospel for to hear


Am
And when the meeting it was done
                    G
She cast her eyes about
                         G
And there she saw little Matty Groves
Am      G      Am     
Walking in the crowd


Am
"Come home with me, little Matty Groves
                     G
Come home with me tonight
                          G
Come home with me, little Matty Groves
    Am         G       Am
And sleep with me 'til light"


Am
"Oh, I can't come home, I won't come home
                     G
And sleep with you tonight
                             G
By the rings on your fingers I can tell
    Am       G        Am
You are Lord Darnell's wife"


Am
"But if I am Lord Darnell's wife
                     G
Lord Darnell's not at home
                 G
He is out in the far cornfields
Am           G         Am
Bringing the yearlings home"


Am
And a servant who was standing by
                     G
And hearing what was said
                     G
He swore Lord Darnell he would know
  Am       G         Am
Before the sun would set


Am
And in his hurry to carry the news
                       G
He bent his breast and ran
                        G
And when he came to the broad mill stream
    Am          G         Am
He took off his shoes and swam


Am
Little Matty Groves, he lay down
                  G
And took a little sleep
                   G
When he awoke Lord Darnell
    Am       G      Am
Was standing at his feet


Am
Saying "How do you like my feather bed
                       G
And how do you like my sheets
                   G
How do you like my lady
    Am           G    Am
Who lies in your arms asleep?"


Am
"Oh well, I like your feather bed
                      G
And well, I like your sheets
                       G
But better I like your lady gay
    Am         G     Am
Who lies in my arms asleep"


Am
"Well, get up, get up", Lord Darnell cried
                         G
"Get up as quick as you can
                       G
It'll never be said in fair England
    Am   G     Am
I slew a naked man"


Am
"Oh I can't get up, I won't get up
                      G
I can't get up for my life
                      G
For you have two long beaten swords
    Am      G      Am
And I not a pocket knife"


Am
"Well it's true I have two beaten swords
                         G
They cost me deep in the purse
                      G
But you will have the better of them
    Am     G        Am
And I will have the worse"


Am
"And you will strike the very first blow
                     G
And strike it like a man
                    G
I will strike the very next blow
         Am        G   Am
And I'll kill you if I can"


Am
So Matty struck the very first blow
                         G
And he hurt Lord Darnell sore
                         G
Lord Darnell struck the very next blow
    Am     G        Am
And Matty struck no more


Am
And then Lord Darnell he took his wife
                         G
And he sat her on his knee
                         G
Saying, "Who do like the best of us
Am     G        Am
Matty Groves or me?"


Am
And then up spoke his own dear wife
                         G
Never heard to speak so free
                             G
"I'd rather a kiss from dead Matty's lips
    Am            G    Am
Than you and your finery"


Am
Lord Darnell he jumped up
                  G
And loudly he did bawl
                        G
He stuck his wife right through the heart
    Am            G        Am
And pinned her against the wall


Am
"A grave, a grave", Lord Darnell cried
                     G
"To put these lovers in
                 G
But bury my lady at the top
    Am         G     Am
For she was of noble kin"
